Police in Myanmar have filed a new charge against ousted leader Aung San Suu Kyi, in a move that may allow her to be held indefinitely without trial.

Suu Kyi, who was ousted in a military coup on Feb. 1, has already been charged with possessing walkie-talkies that were imported without being registered.

The new charge is for breaking a law that has been used to prosecute people who have violated coronavirus restrictions. It carries a maximum punishment of three years in prison and could allow her to be detained indefinitely without court permission.

Suu Kyi made a brief virtual appearance at a court in the capital Nay Pyi Taw on Tuesday. Her next court appearance is scheduled to take place on 1 March.

Protests continued Tuesday in Yangon, the country’s largest city, and elsewhere. Around 3,000 demonstrators, mainly students, returned to the streets of Mandalay, shouting for the return of democracy.
